In this photograph virtually the entire railway layout of the Grantham area can be traced. From the Great North Road bridge at the south end, northward to Peascliffe Tunnel(East Coast Main Line) and Gonerby Tunnel (Nottingham line); including the branch from Barrowby Road junction to Ambergate Yard and the basin of the Grantham Canal. It's an amazingly fine all-encompassing view.
